Kano Ban Tricycle Operations
The Public Relations Officer of KAROTA, Nabilusi Na’isa, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, said the ban would come into effect from Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
According to him, the government made the decision after providing 100 ultra-modern buses and 50 taxis that would be conveying passengers on the roads that are prohibited for tricycle operators.
“Adaidaita Sahu drivers (tricycle operators) are prohibited from following Ahmadu Bello Way by Mundubawa road to Gazawa and Tal’udu road to Gwarzo,” the statement partly read.
“The government has provided buses in order to enhance transportation in the state as well as to make it easier for people to follow these routes.
“The government will also announce when tricycle operators will stop using other major roads in the state once it provides more ultra-modern buses and taxis to ease traffic congestion in Kano city.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje had also banned persons of opposite genders from boarding the same tricycles across the state.
